I had breakfast with a beautiful young woman whom I absolutely adore. She was actually my boss at one time. I would claim her as my own daughter if I could. She’s an old soul and we see eye-to-eye on about everything.
She made a huge decision to leave her job in health care. I understand exactly how hard that decision was as I had to do the same. Nothing is the same anymore with all the issues surrounding Covid and you have to ask yourself if you are part of the problem or part of the solution. Morally, I felt I was part of the problem. But I did not have the smooth, heartfelt send-off like she did. My exit was kinda messy.
So she’s taking a job that has nothing to do with her schooling. She still has big school loans which I cannot even imagine having. But what do you do? You have to stand up for what you believe in, regardless. You have to live with yourself first and foremost.
My friend is concerned about everything closing again like it did last year. She was discussing this with her real mom. She wondered what would happen if she lost her new job. And her wise real mom simply said, “faith over fear.”
Faith over fear.
Fear is powerful. It robs you of the most precious things in life. It keeps you stagnant. It keeps you frozen in time to where you cannot do even the simplest of tasks in life. You can’t make the decisions you need to make. And don’t even consider doing anything fun and adventurous. It’s too scary out there.
Our faith in God should be strong enough to conquer fear. For God is far greater.
Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
Not just some things. ALL THINGS.
Faith over fear.
My focus for this day. ♥️
